PARA Paints Announces Partnership with Scott McGillivray


HGTV Star and seasoned contractor gets the job done with PARA Paints


TORONTO, ON (January 11, 2017) – PARA Paints, an integral part of the Canadian decorating landscape for over a century, announces its exclusive partnership with award-winning HGTV Canada host, celebrity contractor and real estate expert, Scott McGillivray.


For years, we’ve been using PARA paint on Income Property, and I also use it in my own home because I love the colour options and it provides great coverage for an excellent finish,” said Scott McGillivray. “As a contractor, I’m able to get the job done right the first time around with PARA paints, which obviously provides huge value, and it’s one of the reasons why I’m really happy to be involved in a partnership with PARA.


This year Scott will be joining PARA Paints at the Interior Design Show in Toronto, which takes place at The Metro Toronto Convention Centre from January 19th to the 22nd. On Sunday January 22nd, Scott will be chatting with House & Home Magazine’s editor-in-chief, Beth Hitchcock and Senior Design editor, Joel Bray. Their discussion will focus on design tips and tricks to help guests understand how they can get the décor looks they love from Scott’s shows, and from the pages of House & Home magazine. Afterward, Scott will be available for a meet-and-greet at the PARA booth.


We are so excited to be partnering with Scott. He brings quality to any project he touches and makes sure the job is done right the first time with beautiful upscale results that parallels what our brand delivers,” said Garry Belfall, Brand Manager at PARA Paints. “This is a big year for PARA. We are launching a new PARA website, we will be rebranding our product lines and we are rolling out a new colour system later in the year, so this partnership could not have happened at a better time.”
